Ezekiel Elliott exercised poor judgment during a St. Patrick’s parade in Dallas, pulling down a woman’s shirt and exposing her breast. The incident was caught on film.
Not exactly a great look for a guy who, less than a year ago, was accused of domestic violence by his ex-girlfriend.
“Zeke, he’s a good guy,” Pro Football Hall of Famer Michael Irvin said on CBS Sports Radio’s Gio and Jones. “(I told him), ‘I know you like having fun. I know there’s no real intent there. You know the person, and all you guys are having fun, but you just can’t do it, man. You can’t do it. Whatever it was that you thought was big at Ohio State, multiply it by 20. That’s where you are right now. You just can’t do it.’”
Elliott, 21, led the NFL with 1,631 rushing yards and was named Rookie of the Year last season. He had nearly 2,000 total yards and accounted for 16 touchdowns (15 rushing, one receiving).
Incidents like the one in Dallas, however, don’t do much for his image.
“You can’t do it in public,” Irvin said, stressing the importance of better judgment. “When you get back to the room and y’all shut that door and she says it’s cool, y’all can knock yourselves out with it.”
